Paypal & eBay Most Popular Phishing Targets; Banks Come Next

Phishtank, a digg-style phishing database by OpenDNS folks, have published phishing statistics for the month of October.

The report indicates that Paypal and eBay brands were most targeted in phishing emails. Barclays came a distant third while JP Morgan Chase and Citibank were least targeted by phishers.

The Phishtank report more or less matches with the phishing scam statistics published by Secure Computing.

It also says that a quarter of the phishing websites are located in the US while South Korea and India occupy the other two top slots.
